    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Typically a judgement free place to work. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are almost impossible. Higher positions are typically outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and sympathetic with your team. Don’t make them work harder promising “talks” of advancement if you know that’s not your intention.

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay Straight Out of College
    Decent Benefits and Employee Discount
    Decent Retail Manager Training Program

    Cons

    Favoritism With Employees Including Managers
    They Will Push You Out If They Want
    Lax With Pay Issues at SA HQ

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and stop trying to push people out because they "rubbed you the wrong way". This is corporate America and favoritism and forcing people out is unacceptable in the workplace nowadays. This issue starts with my trainer and includes my interactions with the regional management at the time. Minimal effort on their part to address the issue and they just let the situation play itself out even though they knew she was aggressively wanting me to fail despite checking off all training requirements.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good introduction to retail and cash handling

    Cons

    Very little loyalty of upper store management - including Human Resources - to those who are dedicated employees yet the demand loyalty from the employee to the store.
    Extremely erratic hours so you therefore cannot plan for the even the immediate future nor can you count on having full time status (and therefore receive benefits including medical).

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your dedicated employees with loyalty. Stop offering benefits via full time status and then "pull the rug out from under" the employee by having them go under the 30hr weekly average needed for those benefits. This is pure evil. No one at your stores now "gives a flip" about your raising the minimum wage when you everyone at the store gets hit with their hours being cut.

    Fire the HR personnel and educate upper management on grocery side of the store upper management knows nothing

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Decent starting pay, fun coworkers, 10% discount

    Cons

    Disorganized local management. For example, some people were told a few days in advance if they were being kept after the season. They were supposed to tell me if I was being kept and I didn’t know if I had a job until I asked on the last day, they said they hadn’t made a decision

    Advice to Management

    Understand what the team has to do to follow new practices that isn’t unreasonable, communication between management and team members

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Ten percent store and in-store starbucks discount.

    Cons

    Management expects team members(associates) to do work of team leads (managers) for regular pay, unorganized new-hire training (so much so that new team members had to figure out how to do their job on their own rather than being trained thoroughly by a seasoned team member), unorganized communication between managers and staff, some managers conducting unprofessionally by badmouthing other employees instead of addressing matters privately.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to ensure that professionalism is always maintained between and in front of your employees. Having managers gossiping negatively about employees to other employees is highly unnecessary and very unprofessional.
